As feel-good films go, Chef, starring Saif Ali Khan, is inoffensive and frequently charming. It’s a decent but far-from-spectacular remake of the Jon Favreau starrer from 2014. Chef isn’t perfect; it lags in places, offers quick-fix solutions to characters’ problems, and feels wholly familiar. But at a little over two hours, it doesn’t ask much of you, and offers some pleasure in Saif Ali Khan’s return to form as an actor hard to look away from. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five.

Chef, an adaptation of Jon Favreau’s 2014 film, is sweet but not tangy. Its flavours are slow to take hold. Like the original, the film is amiable but it never becomes essential. These are not spoilers – all of this is in the film’s trailer. And that perhaps is the problem with Chef. Even if you haven’t seen the original, you know exactly where the narrative is heading. The beats are familiar. But it doesn’t become comfort food because the pacing is slow and and the energy flags, especially in the second half. Despite the gorgeous food visuals and Kerala landscapes, a certain blandness remains.

On the whole, Chef is a poor fare which simply fails to touch the heart. It would appeal to a very thin section of the elite audience, but for the majority, it would be only as exciting as the prospect of feasting on stale food. At the box-office, it will prove to be a debacle.

Chef’s journey is about realising the importance of doing what one wants over what one needs and amusing in the nature of creativity in the age of social media. But in this droopily written scrap-of-life and far-from-faithful recreation, we never get a sense of what’s eating Roshan Kalra. Grown up angst is a valid and neglected aspect of our storytelling. Except Menon’s digressing exploration of it feels more dull than delicious.

Raja Krishna Menon binds the story very well. Choosing the tough way of avoiding cut-copy-paste, he does justice to the script and shows us how an official adaption should be treated like. Food being the backdrop, Chef is majorly a story of values, family and love. If you’re watching this film,‌ a friendly advice, watch it with your stomach full – as it will make you hungry.

The one truly memorable moment in Chef – at least for those of a certain vintage – is when Khan makes a clever reference to a twenty year old buddy film. It’s a fine line, and there is something heartening about the fact that Khan looks to finally outgrow his greatest triumph by laughing about it. Chef holds no secret sauce of its own, but perhaps we shouldn’t be that surprised. There is only that much you can do with a reheated film.

There are some interesting flavours here, but ‘Chef’ feels derivative, and doesn’t come together as a fully satisfactory dish. And that’s got to do with the uneven, stodgy writing. The smoothness that should have been part of a first-rate spread is evident only in some parts: the others are awkward and stilted and contrived, and that impacts the entire film.

Taking inspiration from Hollywood’s delectable film of the same name made by Jon Favreau in 2014, director Raja Krishna Menon gives us a slice-of-life film that satiates the palette and tugs at your heartstrings.Chef works on two levels. First, it takes you on a gastronomical adventure. But most importantly, the film is an emotional journey that ties up all the loose ends between fathers and sons, whose ideologies may differ but who still share a deep bond that is impossible to shake off.

CHEF starts on a slow note. The Father-son relationship is the highpoint of the movie. Also, Roshan’s jealousy for Biju is funny. The second half is when the road trip begins also puts a smile on your face. CHEF being in the ‘food porn’ zone, several scenes are sure to water your mouth though one expected to see more food visuals in this film.On the whole, CHEF is a feel good cerebral entertainer that charms you with its simplicity. At the box office, it should appeal to the target group of multiplex audience that appreciates discerning cinema. The film has the potential to grow with a good word of mouth.

Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan’s delectable drama, Chef, is a relief on several fronts. The inglorious mid-life crisis, identity struggle, fractured marital relationship and single parents’ woes are showcased with impeccable grace in director Raja Krishna Menon’s slice-of-life drama. But that shouldn’t stand in your way of enjoying this heart-warming drama. It’s modern, funny and leaves you hungry for more.
